Hello lovely readers! I hope you have all had an amazing work week and are having an awesome start to your three day weekend! (If you’re in the US) Thank you to all the veterans who have sacrificed immensely for our freedoms.

This past weekend, November 5th, I was thrilled and proud to be a part of the Secret Art Show in Burbank at The Burbank Studios. This event is organized by the amazing Burbank Arts for All Foundation, whose mission is to ensure art for all students in schools, a cause I have always cared about greatly. I studied to be a teacher and think the arts are an integral part of children’s development and that freedom of expression through art can change a students life. The foundation does such great work. Shout out to the lovely coordinator Saundra, whose dedication was the backbone of the terrific turnout Saturday and stunningly well put together, unique, and fun event. Artists from nearby studios such as Nickelodeon, students, Conan O’Brien and other celebrities, and talented artists contributed works of art, all 4 x 6″.

I contributed to the show last year, but I wasn’t able to attend, due to work. Chris and I were so happy to get to attend the event this year and met so many talented artists, students and their teacher who donated their time and photography skills to put on a fun photo op, the DJ from Iheart Radio, and kind and tireless volunteers. The wine and appetizers were yummy!
